Summary:
Digital Watermarking is a multimedia technique recently developed with the purpose of enhancing copyright protection on multimedia files. This thesis presents a survey of digital watermark features and classifications. It also proposes a classification method that includes most of previous classifications. The thesis then proceeds to detail two digital watermarking methods, Lower Significant Bit Encoding and Spread Spectrum Encoding. Software is designed and implemented to show the capabilities and behavior of each method. The software also shows how each method reacts to four typical transformations (attacks). The results of applying the two methods and their survival rates against the typical transformations are discussed in detail. Finally, the source code for the software is made available.
